REDLANDS COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOUNDATION TO HOST
SEVENTH ANNUAL DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS FUNDRAISING EVENT
EL RENO, Okla. — Scholarships play a vital role in making college a reality for many high school students, and the Redlands Community College Foundation Inc. is committed to providing that opportunity by raising funds through its popular Dollars for Scholars event.
The Seventh Annual “Dollars 4 Scholars” event will take place beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5, at the El Reno Elks Lodge, 415 S. Rock Island. Tickets are $30 per person and include a meal and $10 free play. Dinner will be sponsored by Fellers, and the Elks will feature a cash bar.
“Each year the Redlands Community College Foundation provides quality scholarship opportunities to our students,” said Redlands President Jack Bryant. “With continued decreases in state funding, it is so encouraging to see the Redlands community step up to fill the gap that could prevent students from achieving their educational goals.”
The event will feature a Casino Night theme with sponsorship opportunities. For $1,000, Black Chip Sponsors receive a corporate table, 16 tickets, logo representation in the event promotion and a social media shout out; for $500, Blue Chip Sponsors receive eight tickets, logo representation in the event promotion, and a social media shout out; and for $300, Red Chip Sponsors receive four tickets, logo representation in the event promotion and a social media shout out.
Donation opportunities are also available for individuals, families and businesses for the silent and live auctions. All the money raised at the event will go toward student scholarships.
